    how to use wireless flash as light source

    hey all, while at a wedding, i noticed their photographer was able to use his flash wireless on a monopod but he used it as a continous light source, much like a torch(instead of continuous flashes), while he used his SLR to capture photos. This was during the first dance. Does anyone exactly know how to do this on a Nikon D700 and SB900 or SB600? I believe the flash needs to be on wireless mode and the D700 set to commander mode. But thats all I know.

    any help appreciated.

    It's most likely that the flash was not a speedlight, such as the SB900 or SB600, but a monoblock studio strobe, which generally come equipped with modeling lights, which enable you to visualise how the light will hit the subject before the flash goes off.

    Unless he had the modelling light button stuck down on an SB-900. Though I can't imagine this is good for the flash.
